Read a xml file respecting its encoding information

Usage

simple-iso-8859-1.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1" standalone="no"?>
<test>
  <value>ácentó y la letra ñ<value>
</test>

Without this module the above xml file would be read incorrectly by the standard fs module, because node.js only supports some encodings in its core

<!-- output produced by fs.readFile/fs.readFileSync -->
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1" standalone="no"?>
<test>
  <value>�cent� y la letra �<value>
</test>

Basic API

'use strict';
 
var fs = require('fs'),
    path = require('path'),
    xmlReader = require('read-xml');
 
var FILE = path.join(__dirname, 'test/xml/simple-iso-8859-1.xml');
 
// pass a buffer or a path to a xml file
xmlReader.readXML(fs.readFileSync(FILE), function(err, data) {
  if (err) {
    console.error(err);
  }
 
  console.log('xml encoding:', data.encoding);
  console.log('Decoded xml:', data.content);
});

Streaming API

'use strict';
 
var fs = require('fs'),
    path = require('path'),
    xmlReader = require('read-xml');
 
var FILE = path.join(__dirname, 'test/xml/simple-iso-8859-1.xml');
 
var decodedXMLStream = fs.createReadStream(FILE).pipe(xmlReader.createStream());
 
decodedXMLStream.on('encodingDetected', function(encoding) {
  console.log('Encoding:', encoding);
});
 
decodedXMLStream.on('data', function(xmlStr) {
  console.log(xmlStr);
});
